Labor unions have done a lot of good for American workers. They brought us rights like collective bargaining rights, a shorter workweek, laws like the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, and protected American children by keeping them out of the often dangerous workplace. You might be considering joining a union or, depending on your industry, feeling pressured by your colleagues to join one. Joining a union has its benefits, but it can also constrain you as a worker and require financial contributions. Consider the following issues before you decide if joining a union is the right choice for you. If you face problems with your colleagues or your employer about your decision to join a union, contact an experienced employment attorney in New Jersey to discuss your legal rights.
